Maryland Divorce Mediation Lawyer

Profile Picture of Nancy Caplan Mediation of legal disputes is a vital tool for people and businesses facing legal conflicts. The traditional adversarial system frequently fails to produce satisfying results at a great financial cost. Conflicted parties are frustrated after the case is over.

In family law matters, resentment after attorney-negotiated child custody, support and property settlement and separation agreements creates a tinder box for future disagreements. Where disputes are resolved by trial and orders of the court, litigants are labeled as winners or losers or both, and negative feelings are amplified. Negative outcomes plus crushing legal debts can be life-altering. If you are looking for a Maryland Divorce Mediator call Nancy Caplan, Esquire at (410) 296-2190.

For families, who often remain connected by children after divorce, anger leads to a continuous loop of contention under threat of further legal process. Old conflicts fester and new conflicts grow fertilized by the old conflicts. Separation and Divorce Mediation is a process structured to break this stubborn pattern. With an office centrally located in Towson, the county seat of Baltimore County, family law mediation provides a sensible alternative to costly litigation of family law matters.

Since 2000 the State of Maryland incorporated mediation into its processes and procedures to curtail litigation and the unduly aggravating adversarial nature of attorney-led negotiations. In Maryland courts, disputes over child custody and visitation (also called access) are often ordered to mediate. Even if the child custody mediation is successful, the issues of alimony, support and division of assets, allocation of debts are left behind in the hands of the lawyers and judges. Private divorce mediation tackles all of the issues in a single setting- the Mediator’s private settlement table. The sensible question is why not begin your separation and divorce negotiations in a private and confidential mediation?

Parties are often shocked by the language and tactics of their attorneys. However, lawyers are sworn to be a client’s zealous advocate in negotiations, and if attorney-led negotiations are chosen, the problem does not necessarily lie with the lawyers, it lies with the choice of process. That is your choice.

Choose Mediation if:

  1. You seek diplomatic negotiations over adversarial negotiations.
  2. You want a neutral private setting instead of a public forum airing your personal issues.
  3. You desire to reserve your funds for your family instead of incurring massive legal debts.
  4. You hope for a civilized co-parenting relationship with your children’s other parent in the future.
  5. You wish to avoid repetitive legal entanglements with your former spouse in the future.
